Our Veterinary Support Team

Serena Barber Veterinary Assistant

Enrolled Cert IV in Veterinary Nursing 

Serena hails from Wondai and loves horses. Having completed work experience with the clinic in 2009, Serena continued on staff as a veterinary assistant for some time. Serena then concentrated on her Miniature Horse Stud 'Painted Crystal Miniatures', competing at both State and Nationals as a member of the Australian Miniature Horse Society, the Miniature Horse Association of Australia and the Independent Miniature Horse Registry. Apart from owning 13 miniature horses and 2 American Shetlands, Serena shares her home (figuratively speaking) with 2 dogs, a Sharpei x called Dory, and a Border Collie called Pup, and a Large White pig called Piggly-pig. Serena has now re-enrolled in her nursing studies and hopes to complete her Cert IV by the end of the year.    


Sarah Haack Veterinary Assistant 

Certificate II in Animal Studies

Sarah grew up in the local area, and still helps out on the farm. Sarah, with her natural bubbly personality, loves meeting our pet patients and their parents. Having worked in various businesses over the lst few years, Sarah can happily and efficiently help with your requirements.   

Karrie Ashby  Veterinary Assistant

Certificate II in Animal Studies 

Karrie has been an integral part of the Clinic team for many years. Karrie originally completed a school-based traineeship through the local High School, gaining a Certificate II in Animal Studies at the end of 2014.

Karrie has 2 dogs, a Boxer named Rambo and a Border Collie named Rascal, plus has now added a little Dachshund called Amani (expensive tastes!). Karrie loves to ride her horse Jewels....when she can catch her. Karrie now also has a Clydesdale named Belle, who is quiet, steady and beautiful...but slowwww, and the newest addition is a green Quarterhorse filly. Attendance at Nanango Ladies Panthers games, Campdrafts, Rodeos,  PBR Competitions and Ute Shows occupy most of Karries' spare time.

Ryan Webb Helper

Ryan has grown up as a son of the clinic and really enjoys helping the Veterinarian (his mum) when he is here. We greatly appreciate our clients saying hi to Ryan and encouraging him. Ryan spent 2016 at TAFE learning numeracy, literacy and hospitality, and now works at Kingaroy Kitchens 3 days a week. Here he is pictured with one of the family dogs Harry (who's actually a girl dog but named after Harry Potter).
